    Quote from Simto »
    I know it's to balance the card so it doesn't get out of hand, but every time I read "triggers only once per turn" on a card I can't help but immediately disregard it.

    To me it reads like Yugioh, almost every effect in that game is "once per turn."

    Yeah, but you could still Bribery your opponent's Carnival Carnivore and use it to put the sticker on a card you own. Not being able to put them on your opponent's permanents doesn't mean you can't be instructed to put them on your own permanents by their cards.

    That wouldn't be a card you own, that would be a card you control, that's the difference.

    I think it's really really weird that sticker sheets are going to be Eternal legal. It just feels off to me.

    You're not the only one. I have no doubt it will cause a couple problems.

    I do have to wonder how much a problem sticker cards will be down the road as sticker sheets become rare and the potential of their being so many variations you can make of one card could impact things.

  • posted a message on [DMU] A First Look at Dominaria United

    These lands are in so high demand and going to Dominaria for two planes in a row just asks for reprints of all ten cards of this cycle with plane-specific names.

    A shame core sets stopped happening, again, so there could be more chances to print plane specific cards.

    "Guys! We just had players buy $16 packs, what should we do next?"
    "Well the whales bought $50 packs and normals paid $16, so we can easily do $20 packs"
    "Let the whaling begin!" *Sea shanty intensifies.*

    I wasn't interested before in these and now I'm less interested in them. Even if I was rich I can't imaging buying these for a $2 legend.

    Quote from Grixh »

    They created a gender neutral title for naming knights in Eldraine, I doubt they'd stick cowboy on the type line.

    Me not wanting cowboy has nothing to do with gender, but because I don't want it being a creature type. I don't want either cowboy or cowgirl.

    Normally I'd likely super complain about this, but considering I was proven wrong about new Kamigawa, and proven wrong in Capenna in that I thought it would be exciting but it ended up being boring, all I can do is wait and see how this looks. If they add a fantasy flourish to cowboys then it could work. Might be neat to see a cowboy riding a pegasus or other winged creature and be an archon.

    One thing I don't want is Cowboy being a creature type. I don't know what they could be normally, rangers or warriors, iono, but I don't want cowboy. I'm sure it'll happen though. Please no dragons or angles, they're already shoehorned into certain planes that don't really need them.

    The list cards aren't in draft boosters.

    That's not technically true, being a copy of timeshifted cards they were in Time Spiral & Remastered and Mystery Boosters.

    Would it be cool to open some blinged out $300 card? Sure, but does the game need even more lottery in it? Honestly, I feel like the game should have less of them now as the constant variants are boring now and don't add much of anything besides collector fodder.

    My LGS has someone open a revised dual land in their Zendikar prerelease, which was pretty cool but definitely not something most stores would experience. I think it's a very fun idea, but it's a lot easier to bring back masterpieces which are nice $50-200 pulls and much easier to pull off on both the production side and the consumer side.

    I feel having The List, variant versions (borderless, etched, gilded, special borderless art), and Masterpieces seem a bit too much when it comes to boosters. How many additional lotteries does this game need?

    Seems like a strange thing to bring back when The List is there. If this does happen it's just another cash grab as WotC knows whales will open thousands of packs for a Mox.

  • posted a message on Domnaria United is getting a legendary in every pack (again)
    I wish "a legendary in every pack" was an actual selling point, like with Dominaria, but we've had so many sets with so many legendaries that opening one in every pack is practically expected at this point.

    Quote from Pokerkingdave »
    Wow, since when is a box $158?
    I see boxes of New Capenna on amazon for $110

    Well you see WotC is making the most money it ever has so they thought it would be a good opportunity to make some more money under the guise of inflation. (Yes, inflation exists, but I don't want to hear a company making record profits say it needs to charge more.)

  • posted a message on The fornite secret lair (update:bonus cards revealed)— IGN
    Wrath of God is a weird choice for the storm. I don't play the game, but not every "creature" (player) dies to it and with one always surviving it doesn't make sense. Last One Standing or Duneblast would have been better choices for it.

    With that said, this is awful, even more so than Secret Lairs usually are.

    These cards have literally nothing in common except color and creature types. Using the same art is kinda just a head-scratcher.

    It allows them to do half the work on a new card, putting out more "content" for people to spend money on. That's really it.

    Kind of like what they are doing with UB, they can sell the same card twice now and all they have to do is change the art and the name.

    All of this background D&D lore stuff is wayyyy beyond me. I enjoy reading about it Smile

    I wish there was as much depth in MTG's lore as there is for D&D...

    'buster

    D&D itself doesn't really have lore, but some specific places/settings do like Baldur's Gate, Dragonlance, and more.
